    Address: Thorvald Meyers gate 80, Oslo

    Serving delicious meze and carefully selected wines from their one-of-a-kind list of wines from countries fighting the Ottoman Empire back in the 15th century. You don’t see that focus often, assumingly? This means wine from Middle Eastern countries such as Lebanon and Syria, in addition to leading names from countries such as Greece, Hungary, Georgia, Italy and more. A good selection of wines by the glass as well. A great hangout for a group of friends, sharing tasty dishes and hearty wines. Located in the vibey area of Grünerløkka.

    Address: Operagata 17, Oslo

    A casual restaurant in Bjørvika that opened its doors in the fall of 2023. It is run by the same team that also runs (the Star Wine List Red Star) Einer. However, where the fine dining restaurant Einer focuses on a nine-course set menu, Madonna is more playful and casual. At Madonna you can go for just one of the dishes from their eclectic menu or, most likely, you will opt for more. The wine list is short, but a masterpiece in how to present interesting one-pagers covering all genres. Kudos! Prices are really agreeable as well.

  3. Address: Thorvald Meyers gate 30, Oslo

    A great new addition (from early 2023) to Oslo’s wine bar scene. It's a small bar serving smaller dishes and (mostly) natural wines along Grünerløkkas main drag, Thorvald Meyers Gate. Perfect also for wine lunches as they are one (of very few) wine-centric places opening already at 11/12, setting Fat City apart from most wine bars in Oslo. Take a seat by the bar or by one of the few tables by the window. It's easily overlooked when passing by, but inside you can dive into their short but well-curated wine list skewed towards “natural” wines – although not too dogmatic on this genre and offer...

    The wine list in this casual bistro-style restaurant located in vibey Grünerløkka focuses on California and Burgundy (14 pages deep). A great place for Saturday lunches, and their not-to-be-missed bone marrow dish, focusing on the now widely common “sharing concept”. Also a great place for drinking wines in the Oslo summer sun. Booking is advised.

    Few places in Oslo have such staying power as Brasserie Hansken. Established in 1997 it's still extremely popular with locals as well as travellers and has a longstanding reputation for quality. Located in the picturesque Christiania Torv, it's surrounded by some of the oldest buildings in Oslo. The waterfront is just a quick stroll away, and in the summertime, the outdoor terrace is a bustling, busy sight.

    Brasserie Ouest is located in the quiet and distinguished Frogner area in the western part of Oslo. In the classic French brasserie surroundings you can enjoy a classic menu with a good selection of wines by the glass or by the bottle. The wine list mirrors the French cuisine and covers a wide range of France's classic regions, but allows for other regions from Europe and the new world to pair with everything from frog legs, oysters, charcuterie and more substantial dishes like steak tartare or bouillabaisse.

    Beijing Palace might be more famous for their wine list than their food. The blue suede sofas gives a warm touch to the otherwise clean and simple interior right in the middle of Oslo city center. The Chinese menu is long, but it is the simple and sublime dim sum that attracts Oslo’s wine enthusiasts.

    Address: Fredensborgveien 44, Oslo

    Established in 2015, but the homely vibe makes guests feel it has been there forever. Located in an area previously not known for either great food or wines, now well worth the short stroll from downtown or Grünerløkka with the Star Wine List Red Star Nektar next door. Cosy and warm atmosphere, and you can expect French bistro fare of high quality, and a well-curated wine list covering all bases of French wine. Particularly strong selection of Bourgogne, with Rhône valley also well covered. A real treat is the fact that Chez Colin is open on Sundays as well.

    Newcomer List of the Year Norway, in cooperation with Norges Beste Vinkart 2023

    A classic brasserie at the upscale Sommero hotel. The building was recently renovated (2022). Sommero is centrally located, on Oslo’s west end, with a price to match, some might say. Despite being new, Ekspedisjonshallen is already sporting an impressive wine list. Very strong on the premium end, but there are also nice wines to be had across all price points. There’s a house band frequently playing jazzy tunes. Great for weekend brunches, and open for weekday lunches as well. Do note the impressive wall fresco covering one of the walls.

    Best Short List of the Year Norway, in cooperation with Norges Beste Vinkart 2023

    This Michelin-starred neighbourhood joint is on the northern outskirts of vibrant Grünerløkka, serving a well-priced fixed menu. The kitchen leans toward (neo) Nordic fare, with an extreme focus on the purest raw materials imaginable – always perfectly cooked and treated. The wine pairing menu is highly recommended, always spot on and with a purpose. Not stiff at all, Hot Shop has this welcoming, yet stripped-down Nordic aesthetics to it.

    Sustainable Wine List of the Year Norway, presented by Wieninger & Hajszan Neumann, in cooperation with Norges Beste Vinkart 2023

    Kontrast is located in the culinary area of Vulkan which used to be an industrial area by the Akerselva river. The Michelin starred restaurant offers the best produce of the season in both tasting menus and a la carte with beautiful presentations. If you choose one of the wine pairing menus you might be surprised by the modern touch to it, but Kontrast’s wine list is also worth a serious study before you dig in.

  16. Address: Sofies gate 16, Oslo

    A neighbourhood bistro in the Bislet area. French-centric for sure, however with quite a few bottles from other prominent wine-producing countries also present on the impressive and deep wine list with Bourgogne as its core. Lots of German Rieslings are to be found as well. It tends to be hard to score a table if not booked in advance, however, during 2023 Kolonialen will increase its square meters. Casual and welcoming atmosphere, run by Pontus Dahlström (one of the founding partners at Maaemo).

    Kolonihagen Frogner is a hidden gem in an old building in the beautiful Frogner area. Simple and organic is the core theme of the restaurant, which is as true for the wine list as it is for the menu. People gather in the atmospheric building around small dishes based on locally-sourced produce. The wine list is Eurocentric and medium sized, but to the point.

    Perhaps Oslo’s first wine bar, Dr. Kneipp´s at Markveien Mat & Vinhus is an institution that continues to attract wine enthusiasts. The atmosphere in both the wine bar and restaurant area is relaxed and the worn dining room bears witness to conversations and bottles shared over three decades. Markveien Mat & Vinhus has a long and classic wine list from regions like France, Italy, Spain and the US. The wine list will also reveal some older vintages rarely found elsewhere.

    Omakase is a Japanese restaurant offering an “omakase” menu, which means “to trust the chef”. With only 15 seats around the counter, Omakase offers a unique, personal Tokyo style eating experience.

    Statholdergaarden is a classic fine dining restaurant in the Oslo city center. High ceilings, beautiful flower decorations and elegant chandeliers set a warm scene for a gastronomic experience with roots in the French kitchen. The wine cellar has around 500 labels, going deep into the most classical areas. While Statholdergaarden’s wine list is fine wine oriented, there are surprising elements when it is studied more closely. If you cannot manage to book a table, the informal restaurant in the cellar shares the wine list with Statholdergaarden – at a discount.

    Smalhans is a neighbourhood restaurant in the popular St.Hanshaugen area of Oslo. Perhaps the first restaurant in Oslo to offer a pure naked wine wine list, Smalhans is now well established among the locals as the place to go for for a full “Krøsus” menu, a snack in the bar, a plat du jour or a Sunday burger. The menu is varied and takes inspiration from all the corners of the world, and the wine list features some of the most well known naturalist wine makers of Europe.

    Tranen is a neighbourhood pizza restaurant in the Alexander Kiellands Plass area. The pizzas are recognized as the top three to five in Oslo by pretty much every pizza guide out there. And what better than to wash these slices of heaven than with some Burgundy from their extensive and ambitious wine list? The wine list not only holds top-tier Burgundy but also a fair share of natural wines – well suited for this somewhat gentrified and vibey area of town. Open on Sundays – always a great plus in a city pretty much shut down at the end of the week.

    Great for combining Oslo’s best views imaginable, with a well-curated wine list consisting of some 230 references. It is located on the 12th and 13th floor of the Munch-museum, in Bjørvika just by the fjord. The 12th floor consists of the up-scale Bistro Tolvte, while the 13th floor is a bar with a short by-the-glass list (short but focused that is, no plonk) with only serious wines. Pro-tip: when visiting the bar and terrace on the upper floor, you may also order a bottle from the wine list in the restaurant just down below. Just ask nicely, and they’ll cater for it. Did I mention the view?

    Trattoria Popolare has become the most popular trattoria in Oslo. The sound of the waiters’ shoes over tiled floors, glasses meeting and buzz from wine sipping guests give resonance to the Italian eatery. The Trattoria Popolare wine list is of course geared towards Italy and it carries a large selection from the country’s wine regions, both classic and natural wines and bottles with age.

    When Vinoteket opened in 2018, it gained instant fame for three things: the ridiculously low-priced wine list, the innovative pizzas and the fact that former European Sommelier Championship winner Robert Lie was general manager. Today the wine prices are a bit more normal (albeit still cheap), the pizzas are as good as ever,​ and the wine list continues to evolve and grow. While the combination of great pizza and a kick-ass wine list has been seen before, it's unusual to find such a relaxed and friendly venue in an area of Oslo known just as much for its poor taste as it's wealth and lavish sp...

    A small and cosy wine bar located in the recently developed Bjørvika area. Opens early-ish on Saturdays, hence a good spot for a glass from their extensive and deep wine list of more than 1,000 references. A solid by-the-glass program as well; very educative, and great for the not-so-geeky people looking to broaden their horizons and learn a thing or two. The big list is rather traditionally focused, and very strong on Bordeaux in particular (a rare find these days).

Vintage Kitchen combines the essence of a Danish “kro”, offering lavish open sandwiches daytime and a classic kitchen in the evenings.
